Radio personality Bobby Bones has always been extremely vocal about his support for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Over the past three years, he has helped raise about $3.8 million by selling merchandise, performing charity shows, and so much more.
On Monday night (Jan. 9), Bones hosted the second annual Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots' Million Dollar Show for St. Jude, which included many surprise performances from country music's biggest stars.
Brothers Osborne, Thomas Rhett, The Band Perry, Rascal Flatts, Sam Hunt, Caitlyn Smith, and Garth Brooks were all on hand to perform at the event, which took place at The Ryman Auditorium. According to The Tennessean, "the Million Dollar Show is viewed as a celebration of past fundraising success more than an opportunity to collect more dollars".
The night was full of surprises that only Bones knew about, but Brooks took it upon himself to surprise the radio host with a huge check in stature and funds.
Brooks presented Bones with a check for $2 million while saying, "What I love is this paycheck isn't going to you, and I know that's what you love about it, too."
Brooks celebrated the moment by singing his iconic song "Friends in Low Places" with Bones and his band, which was a surreal moment in itself. Country star Lindsay Ell, who often plays in Bones' band, shared a photo of the moment on Instagram saying, "And then THIS happened. We played with Garth Brooks!!!! #WHAT"
What an incredible moment for Brooks, Bones, and St. Jude's! Watch them sing "Friends in Low Places" below.
